Cabbage Whites

Folks, the cabbage white butterflies (Pieris rapae) are all over the butterfly garden and the Reach today. Flitter flitter flitter.

This is an awful photo I took with an iPhone of one of them sipping nectar from our new Zexmenia flowers. Caterpillars of this species host on plants in the cabbage and mustard families.
